wp-DaveHutchensDavid Hutchens, President and CEO of Tucson Electric Power and its parent company, UNS Energy Corporation

From where I sit, Dave Hutchens has a big job. Being the head of a major utility company, owned by a company based in Canada, presents its challenges each and every day. The pressure for renewables is ever-present, the demand from consumers and the organization that grants or denies utility rate adjustments places additional demands, and the list goes on. How do you please so many masters? And amid all of those challenges, what is this utility company doing right? What has been the impact of their energy efficiency programs and how does that impact our planet and the grid? Join us for an informative, lively conversation and learn from Dave what it’s like to walk in his shoes and what he sees as his role to help steer a very big ship. This show made possible due to the generous support of The Fairfax Companies.

      Thanks for your comment David. I don’t think most people understand what a big job TEP has to do to successfully provide safe, affordable and reliable power. I have learned a great deal from interviewing people like Dave Hutchens.
